This morning saw the long awaited opening of the brand new B&M in Huddersfield at the former Marks & Spencer store on New Street. It is the third B&M store in Huddersfield to open and has created more than 60 jobs for local people.
The new colleagues were asked to nominate a local charity they think truly deserves some VIP treatment for the work they do for the local community. They chose the team from The Welcome Centre who took centre stage and officially unveil the new B&M store this morning.
The Welcome Centre help local families and individuals in crisis with food, toiletries and other essential items. They provide advocacy, guidance, and support to address underlying issues with an aim to improve the quality of life of individuals and families experiencing disadvantage in the local community.
In addition to opening the store, the team also received £250 worth of B&M vouchers which will go towards helping the charity to continue doing the great work they do.
The store manager, Matt Howley said: “It was really exciting to welcome customers through the doors this morning, the feedback so far has been fantastic.”
“A big thank you to the team at The Welcome Centre who helped us open the store, we hope that our donation can help them to continue to do the great work they do in supporting the local people.”
